Dr. Seuss Goes to War and Before

DATE: July 29, 2021  12:30 pm via Zoom


 Gregg S. Philipson
Introduced by Lion Chuck Mandelbaum

The presentation explores Dr. Seuss in his early years as a cartoonist working for Life and Judge Magazines, Esso Oil, and others. It concludes with his works shortly after his service as a Major in the U.S. Army during WWII. It is a fascinating look at the side of Dr. Seuss that is seldom seen.
